    I cannot say anything but positive things about the Wellwood and Angela! We had the most perfect wedding there, and Angela was there to help every step of the way! Angela worked with me for over a year to help me plan my big day and she was very responsive and flexible whenever we met with her. We were concerned that we would not have enough space to store all of our decor, or enough time to set up the venue on the day of the wedding so Angela and her team allowed us to start setting up some of our stuff the night before the wedding to make sure that everything got done. Angela coordinated the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner to make sure that everything went smooth, and she was there during each step of the wedding day whether that was to drive me to my first look photos, made sure that my husband and I got a little time to ourselves on a get-away bus between the ceremony and reception that was packed with the appetizers that we might not have been able to have otherwise, made sure that my husband and I (plus our parents) had drinks throughout the night and she even got me a safety pin ASAP when my dress came apart on the top. I would HIGHLY recommend the Wellwood and Angela and her team for any event that anyone is planning!

    What more could I say about Angela, Larry, and the staff at the Wellwood? From the months leading up to the wedding, the rehearsal dinner, and the day of the wedding ceremony and reception, we were extremely happy with our decision to make the Wellwood such a big part of our day! My wife and I knew we wanted a place by the water and in the quiet little town of Charlestown you couldn't ask for a better view of the Northeast River as it opens up into the Chesapeake. Then, when it came time to taste test the food, that sealed the day. Angela was very busy, as many people schedule weddings at this gorgeous and affordable venue, but was always willing to make time for us to discuss any concerns or questions we had. The packages that they offered for food and open bar were very reasonably priced and the amount of food we got, on top of the top quality, couldn't have been better. Unfortunately on the day of our wedding, mother nature did not want to cooperate, as it rained, but Angela and her staff transformed the large permanent tent structure into a beautiful setting for the ceremony, and then again for the reception. Be prepared for a lot of guests to tell you how much they loved the food, staff, and service here, along with the quaint water views. Last but not least the afterparty at the main bar makes for a great time, and the Wellwood can even set up after party food for you to make it last long into the night! Thanks for everything Angela! We hope to visit soon!
